Anyone want to feature in a magazine? (You need to be working in CH but living in FR)

Hi

I hope this message is fine with moderators. I am looking to contact any Brits who work in Switzerland but live in France. I am writing an article about frontier living for a UK-based English language magazine.

I'm aiming to speak to three different individuals/couples/families who live in France and work in Switzerland. The piece will look at the growing popularity of this way of living.
It will include:

Each family’s background – their life in Britain; why they chose to move to France and why the particular area they chose to live in; what they do in Switzerland.
  • Why did they choose to move to France instead of Italy, Germany or Switzerland? What are the benefits of their life in France (including cultural things) that they value so much? Why is it better than Switzerland? Also looking at the quality of life they have in France.
  • I also need about three high resolution pictures of the person/couple/family, ideally enjoying some nice things in France.

If anyone is interested, please send me a private message and I will give you details of the magazine etc. Then we could speak on the phone..
Thanks in advance

Re: Anyone want to feature in a magazine?

I'm afraid it's not chequebook journalism. If anyone would like to be featured, that would be great, but there's no payment involved for it. Basically, it would involve answering a few questions on the phone. Lots of people I've interviewed before have enjoyed being featured in magazines, whereas others may prefer to be more private. If anyone thinks he/she might be interested, I could email you an article that I wrote, that was recently published in the magazine. The magazine is aimed at individuals who would hope to move to France, and are really interested to hear real life stories.
